School appeals to hit 500,000; WORLDTODAY.

THE number of disappointed parents appealing against their child's school allocation is set to top half a million today, according to new estimates.

Between 1999/2000 and 2006/07, almost 490,000 families lodged appeals, Government statistics, analysed by the Liberal Democrats, show. This will push past 500,000 when figures for 2007/08, are published today, the Lib Dems said.

Their research reveals that in 2006/07 alone 57,950 disgruntled parents appealed against a school allocation. Just over a third of these (36%) were successful.
